AmenitiesThe location is excellent with a supermarket and a restaurant within short walking distance. This villa is located 1.7 kilometres from the centre of Corralejo where there is excellent shopping and a wide choice of restaurants and bars. There are also several, delightful, cove-like beaches in this area, many of them with a beach bar or restaurant alongside them. They serve snacks and delicious fresh fish and are idyllic places in which to while away the long hours of Fuerteventura sun. These beaches are connected by an attractive, sea front path, which leads into the original, fishing harbour and there are surf centres dotted along this stretch, at regular intervals.
